Li Shurui (b. 1981 in Chongqing) graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. Her works are included in the new edition of “Vitamin P: New Perspectives in Painting” (Phaidon Press). In Li’s works, landscape is reduced to the abstract, the abstract to sheer light. The light is the passion of the Op-artist Li Shurui. Stemming from her first a few abstract pieces that documented the mesmerizing illuminations in urban nightlife, Li Shurui’s paintings keep portraying the lights that she encounters and envisions. "Phenomenal and fleeting, the polar light is the most spectacular of all kinds", Li comments. 

Li Shurui’s works featured in many museum and gallery exhibitions. Recent group exhibitions include ‘Absolute Collection Guideline’, Sifang Art Museum, Nanjing, China, (2015); “28 Chinese”, Rubell Family Collection, Miami, FL; Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, CA; and San Antonio Museum of Art, San Antonio, TX, USA, (2013-2015); “Jing Shen—The Act of Painting in Contemporary China”, PAC Museum of Contemporary Art, Milan, Italy, (2015); ‘The Making of a Museum’, Aurora Museum, Shanghai, China, (2014); ‘About Painting’, OCAT Xi’an, Xi’an, China, (2014); “ON | OFF: China's Young Artists in Concept and Practice”, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA), Beijing, China, (2013).
